Planned Parenthood of New York City is throwing a great inauguration bash in New York. I will sadly not be there because I’m heading down with the hordes to DC on Saturday for the inauguration (anyone have an extra ticket?), but it sounds like a great event, so spread the word. Plus there will be buses from the event down to Washington, so it’s the best of all worlds:
New York (NY): On the eve of the biggest political event in at least eight years, Planned Parenthood of New York City will be hosting a cruise-themed Bon Voyage Bush party. With comedian Jeff Hiller MCing and set around Galapagos’s large pond, the event will feature politically-themed cruise games such as shuffleboard and lame ‘rubber duckie” races, as well as drink specials, comedians, musicians, DJs and hundreds of young activists. After the party, buses will be leaving at 1am to ferry partygoers down to DC for the inauguration.
